Oh hey, remember me? Yeah, I'm the guy that's supposed to be running this site. Sorry for the long absence. I've been consulting, recording my electronics radio show, managingÂ a multi-blogger engineer site and even getting married! Jeez, it's been a busy time. Anyway, things have cooled off a bit, so I've freed up some time (for now, never know what'll happen).
I decided to dive into a new project after a long hiatus from hobby type activity. I plan to put an MP3 player and output stage board into an antique radio enclosure. I also decided to document the process, specifically using the open source board layout program, KiCAD. I've been talking about learning the software and doing the videos for a while now, so here it is! The first installment is the schematic capture. I'll add more as the board gets more complex and I need to dive more into the process of actually getting a board fabbed. I'm excited! Hope you enjoy the video and the ones to come!
